Baby Geniuses

Hello, babies!
We hope you enjoyed the Big Game! We spent Sunday cheering for 2018 all star Phil Rosenthal. We skipped the puppy bowl and revisited that show about hypothetical bizarre animal fights. Also on this episode: a couple is inspired by our witch tattoo conversation and gets matching butt tatts! On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Clamato."

MBMBaM 392: Big Game Tony Sunday


We're breaking down all the wild twists and turns of Big Game Tony Sunday, a game we definitely had not watched at the time of this recording. Our prophecies, as per usual, ended up being eerily accurate.

Suggested talking points: Super Bowl Predictions (Again), Kissing Curry, Armpit Bird, Cookie Angel Test, Wake Up to Bagels, I Like-A Do Whaaaat?!?!

The Greatest Generation DS9 Ep 195: Pins & Limp Thread (DS9 S1E17)


When a Klingon’s dying breath is to proclaim victory, the crew get dramatic about it. But while Odo becomes even more perplexed than normal about his colleague’s behavior, they’re cutting the phone lines and reenacting the death throes of a dying civilization. Should colleges and universities divest in Valeria? Is O’Brien going to have to get used to doing it in front of other people? Where is Quark in the cum hierarchy? It’s the episode where we go “full tube” to preserve our privacy.

The Flop House: Episode #250 - The Apple

The Flop House
Travis McElroy

Hey, we found a guy from much more popular podcasts than ours to come guest host with us. Travis McElroy from My Brother My Brother and Me and The Adventure Zone (and like 50 others) joins us to discuss the movie he insisted we watch, The Apple. It’s… a trip. Meanwhile Elliott clarifies the plot to Bosom Buddies, Dan refuses to meet an actual vampire, Stuart reveals a Julian Sands secret, and Travis quickly discovers that the easiest way to fit in is to bully Dan.

Who Shot Ya? Episode 22: Cloud Atlas and Our Favorite Films that Other People Hate

Who Shot Ya?
Ricky Carmona
April Wolfe
Alonso Duralde

We're doing things a little differently this week. Instead of seeing a movie in theaters, we let Ricky pick one. And to the chagrin of many, he chose the Wachowski's three hour long epic, Cloud Atlas. After first complaining about the length, Alonso and April then discuss the merits and aspirations of the polarizing film. And don't worry, they do talk about all the prosthetics and makeup (there are A LOT of fake noses in this movie). Dovetailing with that conversation, the gang discusses the movies they love...but everyone else hates. You may be surprised by the terrible movies these professional film critics like! You'll never guess who likes Dragonball Evolution.

In news, Helen Mirren is sad about Star Wars, Richard Roeper buys Twitter followers, LilRel Howery gets an invite to the Oscars, and work has begun on a Passion of the Christ sequel.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

April - Slaughterhouse-Five
Alonso - Scream 3
Ricky - Prisoners

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

With Alonso Duralde, April Wolfe, and Ricky Carmona.

Ep 5 Go Fact Yourself with Dave Holmes and Monique Powell

J. Keith Van Straaten
Helen Hong
Monique Powell
Dave Holmes

In this episode, writer, comedian and International Waters host Dave Holmes competes against Save Ferris’ Monique Powell. Holmes shares his number one piece of advice for game show host newbies like J. Keith, and Powell tells us about her hard-partying ways on last year’s Warped Tour. Monique’s areas of expertise include: cat behavior, home remedies, and brisket. Dave’s areas of expertise are: Broadway musicals, beer commercials and Melrose Place. Before their professed expertise is put to the test, however, J. Keith Van Straaten and Helen Hong will ask if their guests can explain the difference between venom, poison, and toxin, as well as the difference between a homonym, a homophone, and a homograph. Do YOU know the difference? Find out!
